CSGN Young Persons Travel Grant

Fund closed to applications - videos of the presentations and links to the 2018 reports are available below.

The High Line in New York, Gardens by the Bay in Singapore and the Bosco Verticale in Milan are just some of the world-renowned examples of green infrastructure which are already being used to inspire the development of projects in central Scotland.  

In 2018, young people aged 18 - 25 were able to apply for a grant of up to £1,000 (£500 if visiting an initiative in the UK) to visit anywhere in the world to learn more about green infrastructure projects like these and to bring the knowledge back to the Central Belt. It was also the Year of Young People 2018 and applicants were also encouraged to find out about how young people are influencing, being made aware of, or directly engaging with concepts like urban greening and green infrastructure.

Successful applicants were announced at the 2018 CSGN Forum event by Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform. They have since been able to present at our event in Scottish Parliament, and at the 2019 CSGN Forum. Videos of the presentations and links to the reports are available below.
